A Program of Economics Research on Improving Estimation of Benefits from Reduced Pollution
In the light of increasing official interest in using benefit-cost analysis to evaluate EPA's environmental programs and specific regulations, a committee of economists was convened at Resources for the Future in December 1980 for the purpose of considering what we know about pollution control benefit estimation, how much confidence we can place in existing estimates, what methodological questions most urgently need attention, and what major data gaps demand filling. This report contains the committee's judgment on those issues.
